eric lerner: gong.

The connection between colour and emotion is intrinsic in all of us. Universal and without language, there is a common, almost synaesthetic understanding of how different hues reflect what feelings are held within us. In his brilliant short film and unofficial music video for “Gong”, by one of the world’s best bands ever, Sigur Rós, film-maker Eric Lerner explores not only the correlation between colour and emotion but what would happen if these colours were on display for everyone to see. Like a gigantic mood ring on our bodies.  Stripped of the ability to hide our emotions or reveal only what we choose, how do people react to us when they can see our true inner-feelings so easily? And how do their reactions in turn, like the beginning of a cycle, affect our emotions?
